Gifts for All the People in Your Life and How to Wrap Them

Can anyone tell that we are really in the Christmas spirit already? CAN IT JUST BE CHRISTMAS YET?! Okay, actually, no not really because that would mean I would need to be done with the one thousand things on my very long very extensive checklist, however, thanks to Tuesday Morning that checklist has become noticeably shorter. A few weeks back I found myself feeling that holiday rush, yes, I know a bit premature but this is what happens when you work in a field where you start every season 6-8 weeks early! Feeling the pressure I found myself wandering into Tuesday Morning for what I can only describe as the happiest shopping experiences.  (Click HERE to find the closes Tuesday Morning store to you!)

Amanda Jane Jones joins the Lars Print Shop!

We couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome graphic designer and author, Amanda Jane Jones to the Lars Print Shop! A few months back, Amanda was looking for a home for her new collection of prints that are inspired by her new book co-authored by her husband, Cree, Yum, Yummy, Yuck. I didn’t have to think twice about it. I knew that we wanted, no needed those beautiful prints of Amanda’s in our shop. So I reached out and awaited her response with butterflies in the tum tum. She got back to me, and as you may be able to tell the response was “Yes!” and so we set her shop in motion!

This is Amanda’s first line of illustrative prints and she is “over the moon excited with how they turned out” as are we! The pieces were designed with versatility in mind, they are fun and bright enough to be in a child’s room, but also bold and graphic enough to be on the mantle in your living room. They are the perfect pop of color for any room in the house! From children to adults these are fitting for everyone! Read on →

New in the shop: Christmas decorations

You may have seen our recent line of wrapping paper but have you have you seen our ornaments and holiday decor yet?! In case you can’t tell we are in the Christmas mindset here at Lars, sugar plums dancing in our heads and everything. So, it only made sense to embrace the Christmas feels instead of suppress them. And embrace we did! Starting with wrapping paper and leading up to so much more! Including these ornaments that we have decided would look lovely on each and every one of your Christmas trees (especially with that Lars wrapping paper underneath *wink* *wink*).

Mary’s New Leather Sofa

Some of you may recall a post I wrote a while back about My New Green Sofa. Well, this time around I wanted to talk about a little something called Mary’s New Leather Sofa, or, as we’ve come to call it, the big comfy cozy couch. Seriously, it’s great! I could nap on it for days (on one or two occasions, I might have even done just that).  Read on →
